40-Year-Old Former Teacher Marries 16-Year-Old Student

A 40-year-old high school teacher and cross country coach has resigned and married a 16-year-old student.

A marriage license shows Brenton Wuchae married Windy Hager in
Brunswick County on Monday. The county board of education approved

Wuchae's resignation yesterday, a week after he had requested it.

Wuchae coached Hager at South Brunswick High School, where she
was a star runner. He lives less than two miles from her home on
Oak Island.

Hager's parents say they did all they could to keep the couple
apart after noticing a deeper-than-usual friendship between them.
The Hagers say they reluctantly signed a consent form allowing
their daughter to marry her coach.

Schools Superintendent Katie McGee says she was shocked and
disheartened.
